Rotational angle vise

Enhance the viewing capacity of your comparator by 360°.

R&R Rotational angle vise provides quick, convenient staging for a variety of your parts and can be mounted directly on the rails of your comparator by use of dovetail/jam nuts.* This vise will permit your parts to be accurately held in a definite alignment while the part you are measuring can be extended into the beam of light path.  The vise is designed to rotate 360° and includes 15° machined graduations on the base.  Jaws open to a maximum of 1.25" making it an easy and convenient way to fixture your parts.  The standard jaws are of steel construction but aluminum jaws are an available option.

Rotate the vise in two different axes to provide a means of bringing features with compound angles to the sight line of the optical sensor axis.

*Contact R&R for further information regarding dovetail/jam nuts.
